Philippians 4:13 says we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. This means there should never be a pessimistic Christian if he or she is all in and seeking Christ first in their lives. Optimism should flow from you like blood flows through you. It should be the lynchpin of your approach to life because you know that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. You simply need to refuse the bad report and be like Caleb in the Old Testament and KNOW that the God you serve is ABLE to not only give you the abundant life you are due. KNOW that if you trust Him even when everyone else is negative YOU WILL like Caleb move on when all others have bitten the dusk. In Matthew 19:26 Jesus made it clear with God all things are possible. Are you all in yet? Have you quit embracing the negative?
Have you quit living in “I should have”?
Your outlook does determine your outcome. Expect the best. No more negativity! Say AMEN to Philippians 4:13.
